Northern Light (Gunflint Trail) Water Levels

4 posts in this topic

I'll be heading up to the area in 2 weeks. I wanted to take my fiance out on northern light so she can get some good moose viewing and I can catch a bunch of pike...just wondering how the water level is? I was there in september and it was LOW!!!

I would say that the lakes right now are low but not as low as they were last fall.

Wife and I might be up on the 2nd of June. If not then the 16th for sure. She lived up there for a while. Do you camp there or just fish for the day?

I believe there is 1 walk in campsite, but that's it. I stay at the outpost motel (very good people running the place, been staying there since I was in diapers) just outside of grand marais...I fish a different lake everyday while I'm up there.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
